The museum is entirely run by volunteers, and funding is scarce. Don't expect the most pristine museum, but so expect one with an interesting collection and some friendly volunteer staff. The outdoor exhibits, mainly jets from the 50's and 60s, are fairing badly in the weather. One of the highlights is the collection of uniforms - don't miss the WW1... More

We visited on June 6, 2015 on the anniversary of D-Day and was able to see sand from the beach of D-Day on display! There were a few things in this museum that I saw that the large national military ones do not have. I enjoyed this museum. It is run by a great group of guys that were veterans... More

The Texas Air Museum needs TLC. A lot of TLC. Immediately upon your entrance, the smell of cat pee welcomes you and escorts you the entire time. Strongly unpleasant. First the good. Loads of stuff. Old aviation magazines, Medal of Honor citations, several old Willys jeeps, model airplanes (loads and loads), information on the US training of the Mexican Air... More

This little museum is full to bursting with all kinds of interesting bits and pieces. Not only are there loads of antique light aircraft, there's an Anderson shelter and several displays about all sorts of things. My personal favourite exhibit was a model aircraft labelled as "Aircraft", just... because. There are a couple of sad-looking larger aircraft outside that are... More

Looking for a place to stay inside out of the weather my wife and I spent some time here. I have an Air Force background and this was like a step back in time. They have some planes that lookes like they were made out of scrap wood and baling wire. Lots of model planes, uniforms, and other memorabilia. Only... More

This museum does not have a lot of large aircraft to look at. But, it has a lot of memorabilia and artifacts that I have never seen at any aircraft museum. Plan to spend a couple hours to cover it. The admission fee was very reasonable, we paid $4/person, $3 for seniors. They have a German V-1 on display... wow!... More

I am not an aviator nor a history buff, but I found this museum and our tour guide facinating. I can't recall the gentlemen that gave us the tour, but he was one of the youngest boys to enlist and fly. HI His bio is listec in the history book in the museum and his uniform is there as well....

This little museum is easy to get to in the South San Antonio area. There was good parking and access. They are closed Sunday and Monday. The exhibits could really use some sprucing up, but the collection is very interesting. Some very unique and rare planes, exhibits and objects that we have never seen at any other airplane museum.

This is definitely one of those off-the-beaten-path type attractions. It's only a few miles further down from Mission San Jose, so while making a trip to MSJ, drive a bit further south. This was exactly what we did! Aircraft, military equipment, artifacts, and memorabilia, etc. from WWI, WWII, Vietnam and Korean wars are on display. It is a bit old... More
